Public Service Announcement

Don't flippin call people sweetheart, hun, honey, sweetie, dear, etc.! This is extremely rude and condescending – especially when you are either 1) younger than the said person, 2) a stranger to the said person, or 3) a co-worker to the said person.

Unacceptable. Please, spread the word.

* A variety of nicknames are acceptable between close friends and family.

I personally like to take the approach endorsed by Mel Gibson recently and refer to women as "sugar tits". What do you think?

Hehehe... I like your approach mz benz. I'm sure most people won't mind you calling them sugar tits.

I agree. I'm most annoyed with teenagers calling me, "Ma'am."

And it always annoyed me when Jay at Owens called me, "Mum."

UGH.

#1.) I'm 26
#2.) I"m not British
